Fear leads to anger…

Harry Knowles over at Ain’t It Cool News claims he knows the working title of Episode VII: The Ancient Fear. What’s more, in true AICN style, the title is said to be in reference to Max von Sydow’s character, a “villain who makes Pazuzu look like a pussy!”

For those playing along at home, Pazuzu was the Assyrian and Babylonian demon that possessed Regan MacNeil in 1973’s The Exorcist. The implication is that Sydow’s character can perhaps leap bodies. Is this how Plagueis cheated death? It certainly sets up a contrast between the Jedi, who join with the Force, and the Sith, who may only survive by staying in corporeal form.

As for the title itself… it’s plausible, mirroring both The Phantom Menace and A New Hope. But even if it is the current working title, it may get changed at any time.
